Reviews

“I do love the chunky, clean, and minimalist aesthetic they’re going for here. I also appreciate the gently mocking tone of the narrator bot, PAL(...)”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Overall, Algo Bot is a fun puzzle game with a decent look and a good difficulty curve. It falls into that category of games that are not too hard or annoying but not too easy either. I give it a Save, pick it up if you’re after a new brain-buster.”

“If you like puzzle games, I would highly recommend giving this one a try. Algo Bot is a surprising treat for the mind”

About This Game



Deep inside the Europa, a pan-galactic colonization ship, the sleeping crew dreams about their new life on the far side of the galaxy.

But there can be no rest for Algo Bot, a service droid working on the junk deck. When a routine recycling mission with cantankerous line manager PAL goes horribly wrong, crisis strikes at the very heart of the Europa.

Unless PAL and Algo Bot can restore the Europa's systems and recover the shipboard AI quickly, there'll be no waking up for anyone.

As the player, you will take the role of the operator and use a visual programming language to issue a sequence of commands to Algo Bot. Will you manage to solve all the puzzles?
